Bottle 0,50L. Clear copper colour with small, frothy, off-white head that dissipate in a minute. Aroma of caramel and nutty malts. Taste starts light bitter with almond, burnt caramel and unripened nutts. Finish is light bitter, too. Medium body, watery texture, soft carbonation. Better than I thought it’ll be...

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml bottle - Thought I’d done this one, but obviously slipped under the radar. Pours pale brown with low beige head. Good lacing. Aroma is of malt, toffee, caramel and fruits. Taste is of malt, slight bitterness, fruits, slight mineral notes. Fairly flat on the finish, not much after taste. A lot better than I feared.

2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Canette de 500 ml achetée dans une LCBO de Toronto. Dégustée le 14 juin 2009 (pint). Bière rousse limpide tirant sur le orange. Mousse peu, col mince et éphémère. Peu effervescente, bulles moyennes. Odeur caractéristique de céréales, de pain grillé, de raisons secs et de cognac. Plutôt fade, goûte l’eau, manque de caractère. Goût un peu âcre en finale. Manque de saveur, le nez annonçait mieux.

Nitro can. Malty, nutty flavor with a bit of caramel leading to an eventual kick of hops. Earthy with a hint of orange zest. A little more hops would help greatly

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Reviewed from notes.
The appearance was a clear malty copper colored body with a film of a head just sitting on the top of the body, barely any lacing.
The smell had sweet English malts, "soapiness" more or less to some drinkers.
The taste was sweet through the malts, that English malty aftertaste, sticky sweet finish.
On the palate, it sat a light to medium in body and was fairly sessionable. Carbonation is standard for the style leading to a decent smooth sort of coating of the mouth and tongue
Overall, this is a good beer for the style, and good beer to me, now where’s my fish and chips.
